PSE welcomes Buckley's homes and businesses to our natural gas service

A guide to your Puget Sound Energy natural gas service

Key information

  • On June 26, 2014, Puget Sound Energy acquired the natural gas system from the City of Buckley. PSE now is providing natural gas service to the homes and businesses in the City of Buckley.
  • Thank you, Buckley! In August PSE completed the citywide change-out of natural gas meters. Thank you for your patience and coordination with this effort. It's a privilege to serve you.

Meter Replacements

Beginning in mid-July, PSE changed-out natural gas meters to all commercial, industrial and residential natural gas customers in Buckley. On Saturdays between July 19 and Aug. 9, PSE's natural gas technicians and service team replaced residential natural gas meters, see maps of each zone below:

Project Overview

The City of Buckley on June 26, 2014, transferred its natural gas operating and distribution system to Puget Sound Energy. The last bill for natural gas from the City of Buckley was included in the city’s statement issued June 30, 2014. PSE’s first bill for natural gas service was included as a combined PSE electric and natural gas statement, scheduled to arrive around July 26, 2014.

The transfer represents seven months of planning that followed the November 2013 general election when Buckley voters overwhelmingly approved the sale of the city’s 57-year-old natural gas utility to PSE, which also serves electricity to Buckley.

Safety

At PSE, we know our customers, employees and the communities we serve expect to live and work around a safe and reliable natural gas system. Safety is our top priority when it comes to designing, constructing, operating and maintaining the natural gas system serving more than 770,000 PSE customers. When operating our system, we meet or exceed strict federal and state safety requirements related to pipeline safety. Click here for more information on natural gas safety.

How does natural gas get to my home or business?

Natural gas is a fossil fuel composed almost entirely of methane. Interstate pipelines transport natural gas to regional natural gas systems, where it is metered and delivered through a network of local mains, service lines and, ultimately, to customer homes and businesses.
